Oswego County Federal Credit Union Ready for Big Move

Financial facility prepares to relocate to new digs

    Oswego County Federal Credit Union offices will be closing at noon Jan. 25 while it moves to new office space at East Fourth and Bridge streets, Oswego.

    From Jan. 25-28, there will be an interruption in the credit union’s online banking platform.

    All offices will be open for business as usual on Jan. 28.

    “Our new office will replace our East Seventh Street location and provide our members with even more reasons to join us,” said CEO Bill Carhart.

    The new location, shown above, features about 3,500 square feet, more than twice the size of its East Seventh Street site. It also has two drive-through lanes and a drive-through ATM, among other member amenities.

    In December 2010, OCFCU opened a new office in Mexico at 5828 Scenic Ave. (state Route 3) where it converted and renovated the village’s former railroad depot into a modern credit union. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.

    The credit union’s third office is at 300 W. First St., Oswego.

    Founded in 1975, OCFCU is a member-owned, nonprofit financial cooperative association, which serves more than 7,500 members from throughout Oswego County. OCFCU’s charter was revised in early 2007 so that anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Oswego County is eligible to join.
